Ticket Information:

  • Free Admission

Shake your shamrock; Auckland's Irish Raceday party is returning to Ellerslie Racecourse - this year as the unofficial warm-up to St Patrick's Day.

Each year, Ellerslie Racecourse explodes in a sea of green when Auckland’s Irish contingent (and their friends) descend upon it for their annual raceday knees-up.

Apparently there are only two kinds of people in the world, the Irish and those who wish they were; so we’re calling on you to come channel your inner leprechauns for the return of what is undoubtedly New Zealand's biggest Irish party at the races .

The horses have already confirmed their attendance with the feature races, the Avondale Cup and Guineas, set to entertain.​

It’ll be an epic day out to be sure, to be sure.

General admission is free and gets you into the Irish Party area, however, private spaces and other ticket options are also available. Check the Ellerslie Racecourse website for more.
